"Great way to analyze data with fine-grained control over visualization"

What do you like best?

Periscope's user interface is extremely intuitive in design and functionality. Periscope allows me to easily set Periscope charts to display data in tables, charts and graphs and to join tables analogous to a V-lookup in Excel.

Our data science and product marketing teams use the product extensively to create data dashboards to visualize every part of the business. We strive to be incredibly data driven in our decision making as a company, and Periscope allows us to visualize data from all aspects of our business, including the ability to integrate Salesforce data and pipeline information to better inform the financial success of our company.

What do you dislike?

Periscope does require a good amount of SQL knowledge, which can be picked up but does require practice. That being said, Periscope has done a great job crafting an easy-to-navigate SQL editing experience.

Also, it can often be difficult to manage the large number of dashboards that can be created and disseminated between teams at the company. The search option for discovering and sorting dashboards has room for improvement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Periscope is an incredibly powerful tool that serves as a comprehensive data analysis and visualization tool all-in-one. I would highly consider it for the tremendous value is brings cross teams in your organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Periscope Data has certainly been a best-in-class product when it comes to powerful data visualization and dashboarding capabilities and has been a great tool when compared to alternatives such as Tableau and Domo. Our data science and marketing teams use Periscope daily to make dashboards for company performance overviews and to analyze the health of the business. Periscope also allows our sales teams to make incredibly data-driven decisions about when and how best to approach customers on cross-sell opportunities and renewals.

"We run our business on Periscope"

What do you like best?

We can spin up dashboards for every part of our business, making us the most metrics-driven company in our industry. Incredibly powerful to be able to visualize all data about every transaction we ever manage on our platform.

Because it's so easy to make these dashboards, we actually do a lot of our work like managing checklists for compliance, reviewing sales pipelines, tracking quota progress, etc right in Periscope. Super easy to pipe salesforce data in as well to manage our own data coming out of our app.

What do you dislike?

So far nothing, we could not survive as a company without Periscope Data at this point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's better (more flexible, faster, more powerful) and cheaper than Looker, Tableau, Domo, or any competing product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We manage almost every aspect of our company in this app.

What Business Intelligence Platforms solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Excited to debut this to our clients!"

What do you like best?

Really great visualizations, a far easier way to demo trends over time, wonderful filtering tools. The fact that I can run R & Python scripts in it is fantastic. And it's got such a great ease of access, a great user experience, and stunning aesthetics.

What do you dislike?

I really can't dislike anything about it! It's just too great to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're trying to give our customers better insights into our data, and we're excited to go live soon! As for benefits, it's got capability to work with far more data and offers real time updates. It'll be a fantastic way to automate so much of my team's reporting work; I'll be so glad to no longer have to manually update, over hours, the items that Periscope can do in mere minutes.

"Simple, Yet Powerful With Unparalleled Support Team"

What do you like best?

The periscope support team is the best support team for any SaaS product. When I worked with competitor products, such as Tableau, I knew there was a lot of functionality but figuring out how to actually use specific features and reading through all the Tableau "hacks" was a slog. With periscope, I can have a half-formed thought about what I want to do and the support team will come back to me with multiple alternatives and live, step-by-step instructions. I think the quality of the support team is key to making periscope great because periscope does have limited functionality compared to some of its more established competitors -- but having people to guide you through hacks to simulate more complex features makes up for that limited functionality.

What do you dislike?

I think periscope is an excellent tool for making monitoring dashboards, but it falls short for data exploration. I don't think periscope is specifically marketed as a competitor to Tableau and others for data exploration, so that's okay -- but obviously I would prefer it if periscope was a one-stop solution to analytics needs. Specifically, working with multiple filters and playing around with different dimensions is easier in a tool like Tableau.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use periscope to make dashboards for product and engineering teams to monitor their KPIs. Periscope's simplicity allows me to iterate quickly and this has helped get product and engineering more excited about using data to make decisions.

"Great tool for SaaS companies to support CS, Finance, Sales and Customers"

What do you like best?

You can create dashboards with multiple charts and use variables easily. I've used these charts to support Finance, Customer Success, Product and Sales requests. I also use Periscope to provide our customers information

What do you dislike?

Not much! it'd be great if they had a UI for people that don't know SQL to use

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Help provide Customer Success to access to the data they need. Help Finance forecast. Help Sales understand who is performing.

"A great way to see product analytics "

What do you like best?

The visual graph & charts are a really good way to sales on a visual level. Learning post postgre sql is relatively easy and organize. Even with minimum programming experience anyone should be learn and use periscope. The fact that you can customize your charts & graphs is really helpful when it comes putting together presentation. Exporting excel files are really easy to use as well.

What do you dislike?

If you have no programming experience the software can have a pretty steep learning curve. The UI can be a little difficult to use at first. If you forget to lock your charts other people can mess it up pretty easily. I took me a bit to find how to lock my charts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in supply chain & procurement, so I use it to see sales pattern & fulfillment rates. It has helped me to figure out with products sells better or which product needs more attention. It also helped me to create graphs for other people in my group to do the same.

"Tableau / Looker for a fraction of the price"

What do you like best?

Does just what it says it does. Type SQL. Get Charts.

I love that the pricing is by the row and not by the user. This makes it possible to roll this out for our entire organization.

What do you dislike?

Managing 100+ dashboards can get tough. Particularly when you want to bulk change. Would be really nice to have our charts in source control.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dashboards for all teams. "One Place" to look.

"Incredible way for easy SQL and viewing data"

What do you like best?

An amazing experience since my company set this up and an employee hosting sessions to ease us into using Periscope. There are free classes on Codeacademy to learn how to write SQL! Instead of downloading data/reports and sorting on excel, set Periscope charts to auto-refresh, limit number of rows of results to display, join tables (kind of like a V-lookup), display in tables / charts / graphs, etc.

What do you dislike?

Looking forward to Periscope making more integrations with maybe Google Maps, ESPs, CRM.

Sometimes the site crashes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a fast growing business, you definitely need to try out Periscope, your data scientist would love it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We make dashboards for company performance overviews and different departments, great for sharing real-time data!

"Pretty cool product "

What do you like best?

I like the interface and how you can create your own dashboard and play around with the data. Nothing much to complain about, basically fulfills what I needed. Havent seen what other data software can do, so it seems pretty good already

What do you dislike?

I think my dashboard gets abit messy at times, and that could just be me. Would prefer if they can allow different people to share dashboard, that might be a good way to collaborate with your coworkers. Also dislike the use of colour for the software, maybe white might be less harsh on the eyes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Maybe branding can be a little more fun. Black seems like a dull colour

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to get sales and make data driven decision when needed. Pulling out data from different touch point and presenting it. Can be rather easy to use and navigate. Not much complains.

"Efficient, but requires SQL Knowledge"

What do you like best?

I appreciate the speed of Periscope, the ability to create and silo off multiple dashboards, and streamlined redshift sql writing.

What do you dislike?

Without proper monitoring and siloing, it is easy to experience a lot of down/lag time. Periscope also requires SQL knowledge.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider if you want to hire analysts with strong SQL skills or if you want a tool for business users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Periscope is great for SQL analysts to answer data-driven questions and create dashboard for metric tracking.

"I think periscope is a great tool to keep track of kpis for individual employees and departments."

What do you like best?

I love being able to switch back and forth between different dashboards to see performance in different areas of the business.

What do you dislike?

While I enjoy the security of only allowing access to certain dashboards for certain users, I think that switching and adding users access is sometimes finicky and difficult.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One main thing that I think periscope has helped our company with tremendously is keeping track of our individual sales people's performance.
